Lanvin for H&M

Something that has been long anticipated for and has been highly written and blogged about is the collaboration between Alber Elbaz for Lanvin and H&M. He has designed a capsule range of clothing, accessories and shoes in his signature style for much less than the cost of the high-end collection.

Lanvin is a sought after designer label, often seen on the power-players and classy celebrities of this decade. Spotted frequently on the red carpet, Alber has produced a brand that is highly influential and most dresses spurning hundreds of high-street copies.

Leighton Meester - a poster girl for Lanvin shows how possible it is to take runway dresses from the Lanvin catwalk and with their versatility to use them for evening wear. This is so important for designers because their clothes must be beautiful and elaborate, but also wearable for the everyday consumer.


This collaboration has caused more of a media frenzy than any of H&M's past collaborations between Karl Lagerfeld and Jimmy Choo. This may be because British women often aspire to dress like their French counterparts and see French style as sophisticated and effortless; something that not many English women are able to master. Many of us are hoping that with Alber's help of affordable high-end fashion at low-end prices, we too might be able to carry off that Parisian bon chic look.

The collection arrives in store on Tuesday 23rd November. It arrives online at 7am and when the store opens at 9am. Get ready to sharpen those elbows!
